Last night at the Oscars “The Dallas Buyers Club” took home the Oscar for make-up. At the Green Spa we make make-up our business. We have celebrity make-up artists on staff to create custom looks for day, night and anything in between. Let’s take a look at the trends set by the stars!

Jennifer Lawrence really captured The Green Spa vibe. Her matte foundation and powder sets the tone for a dewy, fresh look that makes it impossible to ever imagine she sweats. Our mineral make-up accomplishes the same goals whether you’re looking for minimal or maximum coverage. The point is to look natural. Also, we’re seeing a tend with Jennifer’s lipstick choice, a slightly darker tone than her real lip color. We applaud her and her artist for claiming the natural look and daring to turn what’s considered day make-up into a red carpet look.

Emma Watson went the opposite way, bucking the natural trend with a more traditional nighttime look. Her dramatic lips work with the more neutral tones on her eyes. It’s the perfect reminder that if you go big somewhere, tone down the rest. Emma’s lips can best be accomplished by first using red lipliner not only around the outer creases of the lips, but over the entire lip. Essentially you’re using liner as a base before you put your lipstick on.



We loved Olivia Wilde’s look! Staying on-trend, she went out with a nude lip, and went daring with the 1960’s style cat eyes. The only look like that of the evening! The perfect combo of vintage meets trend.

We are very excited that Melissa Fiore, who has done the make-up for the Knicks City Dancers and the cult classic TV show “The Walking Dead” is at The Green Spa tonight, December 11th. Her mission: to talk to you about bringing your glowing inner beauty out. Tell Melissa what makes you feel stunning. Do you want to work on your eyes, lips, cheekbones, or facial highlighters? Perhaps you want the secrets to looking like you’re not wearing make-up, when indeed you are!

Here are some examples of the kinds of looks Melissa can create tonight:

Learn how to look like you’re not wearing any make-up at all!

Learn how to take your make-up from ‘office’ to ‘happy hour’.

The pouty lip. Learn how to make your lips look fuller without the filler!

The Smokey Eye. Great for New Years Eve or for when you’re feeling sultry and dramatic

Get the glam. Learn how to accentuate your lips, cheeks, and eyes so that it all comes together resulting in the best you.

We’ve built a new high-end Green Spa Foot Treatment room meant to make you feel beautiful, inside and out. In addition to continuing our commitment to clean, organic products, we’re ahead of the curve with the recent ‘farm-to-spa’ movement. We’ve been using fruits and vegetables from local vendors and from our Green Spa garden for treatments. No chemicals. No additives. All vegan. We’re also excited about continuing to work with our friends at SpaRitual who share our belief in clean, organic living and products. Enjoy these shots of our new manicure/pedicure area as well as our Living Wall, constructed from live moss. What do you think? Hope you’re ready to come by to enjoy some bliss. We’ll be ready with a variety of natural foot soaks to choose from, rose petals, and the candles lit!

This is an invitation from the universe to join me, Sheila Brody, The Founder of The Green Spa & Wellness Center on an amazing journey toward enlightenment this week on Thursday Evening  12-20-12.

Everyone has been talking about this dreaded December 21st, or last day recorded on the Mayan Calendar. I kept hearing about this date and hearing everyone’s philosophies, thoughts and ideas of what was going to happen to us. Is this really the end of our existence, predicted thousands of years ago? Written in the stars? So I had to go and see for myself and ask someone, but Who to ask, who has these answers?

The Mayans do of coarse, so off I go to Tulum Mexico, on the Yucatan Peninsula- The Birthplace of the Mayan Calendar, the so-called date associated with “the end of the world”.  My Journey started when I received an invitation to speak about The Powers of Feng Shui & to facilitate group morning meditations aboard the first inaugural Law of Attraction Cruise Conference.  We spent a life-changing week aboard The Jewel of The Seas and sailed across the Deep Blue, empowering others and teaching the art of LETTING GO OF NEGATIVITY! Think & act positively and watch all your negative behaviors, life circumstances and people fall by the waste side. We literally cast away fear, anxiety, self-doubt and replaced those feelings with confidence, trust and clarity. What a better date than 12-12-12 to visit the Mayan Ruins and spend time with the indigenous people and get all the answers we all have been in search of to share with all of you!

Won’t you join us this Thursday, on the eve of the Winter Solstice & the last day of old thinking and behavior as we welcome in the positivity, enlightenment and Powerful New Beginnings within!

This Meditative Acupuncture Circle & Workshop draws upon the powerful transformative energy of the Winter Solstice, delving deeply into the theme of letting go of the old and initiating change to bring in the new. Participants will benefit from a unique blend of healing modalities, including a Classical Acupuncture treatment, within the enhanced energy of the group, fostering clarity and insight into what you truly want to attract into your Life. The symbolism of the Tarot will be explored through guided meditation, as a way to gain access to your gifts and deepest potential. In this space of profound healing, you will be supported to move forward into the New Year with a deeper connection to your Self, and with renewed purpose and energy.

The workshop will open with the ringing of Tibetan bells and Meditation at 7pm on 12-20-12, please arrive early.  A tea ceremony is included offering an ancient Daoist formula for self-transformation.

Acupuncture Workshop/Circles are 2 Hours in length, 7pm-9pm

$65 per person, series of 5 life changing circles $325 or $55 each.

“Traditionally, we dedicate this issue [of Summer 2010 Make-Up News from Jane Iredale newsletter] to brides and their makeup; this time we’re dedicating it to the woman behind the scenes, the mother-of-the-bride, who surely wants to look good as well. Your daughter may be lucky enough to have someone apply her makeup, but it’s almost a certainty that you won’t be able to sit still long eoough to have someone do yours. So we plan to help by giving you some tips to make things easier and produce a beautiful result that will have all eyes on you as you take your trip down the aisle.
P.S. May also be used if you’re the mother-of-the-groom!”
